guess i should add, with Hot Snakes being my fav of his bands, that all their records were engineered by Ben Moore. I was about to contact him about some stuff, but i'll hold off if it's in the pipeline. Wouldn't want to bug the guy.

after the first post was made i also picked up this record. i have to agree with everything said although it took 3-4 listens to get me there. i've always looked forward to lee's turn on vox the most and was at first let down with his 'rats.' in retrospect it's more due to kim and thurston stepping ...

Hope I'm not jumping on the train too late. These are all worth checking into. I'm kind of embarrassed that I consider this many records to be "masterpieces." I guess I was reaching a little bit as some will appeal to a certain segment, and others to others. in alphabetical order (minus obvious Beat...

2007 I'd Recommend: (in no particular order) -Queens of the Stone Age "Era Vulgaris" each of their records is their 'best' in one regard or another, so this is their best. -Andrew Bird "Armchair Apocrypha" - it was hard hearing this as a 'new' record or collection of songs as i'd heard them all live...

i found a discussion on the gearslutz forum from a year back about modding a MXL V67. In the thread someone said it would make the mic close to the MCA SP1 in design. Another person commented, "Furthermore, from examining the "Dorsey mod" as it is shown in the magazine article, it is very likely tha...

after another few hours playing around, the uneven waveform seems proportional to proximity to the speaker, i.e., the farther I back it away, the more normal it gets... BUT! this is what I had thought at first (just overloading and clipping the mic) but that doesn't explain why (as pictured) it star...
